taken time from your beautiful farm in new jersey. you're coming to d.c. for an energy event, and i know that obviously you've been a former epa administrator and are deeply involved in this issue. talk to me about what's happening around the issue. president obama i know mentioned climate change to the joy of many people in the energy community in his state of the union address. tell me why you're here today. >> i co-chair something called clean safe energy coalition.org on the website. we are about educating people to the role nuclear energy plays today. what we did yesterday was release a white paper that basically talks about the importance of a long-term energy strategy that includes all of the above because right now we're seeing such a run to natural gas. we should take advantage of the fact that the prices are low and that's helpful. but we've been here before and seen low prices and then seen them go up. you want to be very sure as you look at a 28% increase in electricity demand by 2040, which is what the department of energy projects, that you have a very mixed portfolio that

is the energy transformation. the other is after the first term where the president never did anything serious about trade, right now, we are on the verge of starting -- well, one started the other. we're going to start two major trade negotiations. one the transpacific negotiation. and the others we're going to start a u.s./european negotiation. this involves something like 60%, 70% of the world's economies. this is potentially a major engine if we can actually get serious about trade. that would help a lot and help compensate for some of the drag that's been introduced by the sequester in some of the other budget cuts. >> the paradigm around this conversation has been so narrow. it's either been tax increases, spending cuts, to haas' point, might not immediately approve it. it might be more environmentally dangerous transporting it by freight and by ship to approve that natural gas exports. the energy department has said we'll not have negative impact on u.s. manufacturing growth, particularly in the middle of the country. do it now. and finally, stop talking only about it in these terms. th

of concern of what iran might be doing, whether it's using a peaceful nuclear energy program and possibly in the background developing a nuclear weapon. there are a lot of things we don't know but the fact is both countries share an assessment that it could be moving toward a capability. one of the things that was really striking in this press conference was the fact that prime minister netanyahu actually agreed with the time frame that president obama had mentioned over the past week. and that's a year or so. the israelis had been suggesting earlier that the time frame may be moving at a faster pace. and that indicates that there is at least a year for stronger diplomatic efforts or international movement to press the iranians to compromise, to prove that they, as they claim, that they're not developing a weapon or, you know, to find terms that will allow the international community to step back and the israelis not to be concerned about annes so essential threat. >> president netanyahu thanked to president for unequivocally affirming israel's sovereign right to defend itself against any

wages for the american people. supporting the keystone pipeline and american made energy means more jobs for the american people and lower energy prices. repealing obamacare and supporting patient centered reforms means more jobs and lower health care costs for the american people. and protecting and strengthening medicare means a more secure retirement for older americans. more fairness and kibblet for marched working taxpayers. in 1990's president clinton worked with a republican congress to grow the economy and to restrain spending. in the 1990's, the balanced budget agreement actually resulted in a much faster balanced budget than anybody anticipated. balancing the budget was a major accomplishment for republicans in the 1990's, and also part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people overwhelmingly support balancing our budgets. and the budget the senate democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and, frankly, much higher taxes from the american people. we certainly hope the presi
for growth which sound very grand indeed. what are those catalysts? >> look, energy, first off. energy with, you've heard about the fracking but further into that, i think that the trade deficit for the u.s., two to three years from now is going to go from deficit to surplus. we haven't had a surplus since 1975. secondly, global trade, global trade is actually very good for the u.s. because it grows the global economy. for instance, there's a new panama canal that is going to really bowler is it the south belt trade from china to other emerging markets. technology is always, we're looking in the technology, there is something called big beta. this is taking technology from cost controls to revenue enhancement. we coined our own pivot. per re, indsmeesh that, vietnam, oman and turkey. tracy: what worries you the most right now? >> europe. i'm very concerned that cyprus is not by itself a big deal but they keep changing the rules of the game and the financial system is very precarious right now in europe. the u.s. is fine. and i'm just wondering how long can europe, we're in the third, they'r
